ILO modelled estimates
Labour markets have shown surprising resilience despite deteriorating economic conditions, but recovery from the pandemic remains uneven as new vulnerabilities and multiple crises are eroding prospects for greater social justice.
The ILO modelled estimates series provides a complete set of internationally comparable labour statistics, including both nationally reported observations and imputed data for countries with missing data. The imputations are produced through a series of econometric models maintained by the ILO. This document describes the methodology of the series.

The ILO Department of Statistics has just fulfilled its SDG reporting duties for 2020. What the data show is not encouraging: at this pace, we won’t achieve decent work for all by 2030.
